The European Commissioner for Innovation visits the Technopole

On 23 February 2022, the European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, visited the Bologna Technopole, with the Minister of Universities and Research Maria Cristina Messa and the Minister of Education, Patrizio Bianchi.

The delegation, accompanied by the Director General of Cineca David Vannozzi visited the CINECA construction site where the Leonardo supercomputer is being built.

Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is one of the most fascinating technologies of our time: in QC, bits (the units of information that encode the two states, 1/0, of a switch) are replaced by qubits: complex objects, for example subatomic particles such as photons or electrons, which exploit some properties of quantum physics, which can store much more information than bits, therefore potentially much more powerful and performing than the systems in use.
